Shooting for the TV program about ‘Lasowiacy’, i.e. the inhabitants of the Sandomierz Forest, has been completed.
The half-hour story entitled ‘Forest is our father’ (Polish: “Las uociec nas”) is produced by TVP Rzeszów in cooperation with the State Forests.
Lasowiacy is an ethnographic group that has lived since the Middle Ages in the area at the confluence of the Vistula and San rivers on the Nile, a small river flowing through the Kolbuszów Plateau and flowing into the Łęg in the Museum of Folk Culture in Kolbuszowa. The open-air museum exhibition presents the folk culture of the Lasowiacy, who, like no other group in Poland, have always been strongly associated with the forest, and even took its name from the forest.
Reenactors, employees of the Kolbuszowa Forest Inspectorate, the Forest Service Department and students of the Jan Szczepanik Secondary School Complex No. 1 in Krosno took part in the photos for the TV program. On the last day of shooting, employees of the Museum of Folk Culture in Kolbuszowa talked about Lasowiacy, and members of the Folklore Group of Seniors “Kolbuszowska land”, who operate for 10 years at the Municipal House of Culture and participated in the staging of individual motifs of the program.
